Our Flight Experiences and Flying Lesson Gifts


North East Flying Club operates out of Shotton Airfield in County Durham. This central location is close to Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and Teesside. We are located close to the A19 and there are major bus links in to Newcastle and the surrounding towns.

We offer pleasure flights, scenic flights, flying experience and flying lessons in our fabulous CT2K aircraft.

Our pilots are qualified and highly experienced. Our Chief Pilot, Lawrence Bell has over 2,500 hours of logged flight time and is a CAA approved Flight Examiner. All of our staff have a 100% safety record.

All of our products are available as gift vouchers available for immediate download or they can be posted out to you if you wish.

Unlike some other businesses, we do not put you in the aircraft with other people that you do not know and all participants will have a chance to handle the controls. This will be a personalised experience.
